Imagine waking up daily knowing that you must survive on less than $5.50 a day. That is the reality for 4.8 million people in Honduras, a country with one of the highest populations living in extreme poverty in Central America.
High unemployment and a vastly unequal distribution of wealth have only added to the struggles of the Honduran people. The COVID-19 pandemic and two devastating hurricanes in 2020 have only worsened matters, delaying much-needed economic recovery efforts that are still facing these communities today.
But there is hope. Mentors International has been working tirelessly since 2009 to help individuals and families in Honduras turn generational poverty into sustainable self-reliance. Through mentoring, training, and micro-loans, people are improving their incomes, paying off their debts, and increasing their savings.
These individuals and families are not only starting businesses and finding employment, but they are also spreading prosperity throughout their local communities. They are making a difference in the lives of those around them, even in the face of uncertain times.
With your compassion and support, Mentors International can continue its important work and positively impact the lives of those living in extreme poverty.
